''Sgt. Rock'' is a [[PrintLongRunners long-running]] Creator/DCComics war feature, set in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The titular character first appeared in ''"Our Army at War''" #81 (April, 1959), created by writer Creator/BobKanigher and artist Joe Kubert. Rock became DC's most prominent recurring war character, in a genre where one-shot stories with non-recurring characters were the norm, and his title (eventually retitled ''Sgt Rock'') became the longest-running American war comic, lasting until 1998.

[[WordOfGod According to]] co-creator Creator/BobKanigher, Rock died "from the last bullet fired in the last battle on the last day" of fighting in the European Theater of Operations. This "Last Sgt. Rock Story" has never actually been told, but a 2010 story in ''ComicBook/DCUniverseLegacies'' established it as {{Canon}} for the first time.

* ContinuitySnarl: Don't think too hard about "Zany" Bob Haney's ''The Brave & The Bold'' issues where Rock meets Batman in the present day, and how they fit into Rock's broader continuity.

During [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks the Silver Age]], Sgt. Rock often had {{Crossover}} stories with DC's other recurring war features, including ''TheHauntedTank'', Johnny Cloud, and Mademoiselle Marie. Inevitably, Rock eventually met Franchise/{{Batman}}, Franchise/{{Superman}}, and other DC superhero characters - sometimes in stories involving time travel, but sometimes with a "present-day" Rock. He even appeared in DC's quintessential CrisisCrossover, ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''.
